How to Ring in the New Year (Fashionably)

2016 is right around the corner and New Year’s Eve presents the perfect opportunity to show off the best your closet has to offer. You need to end and start your year on a high note, and that includes a fashion high.

Here are some tips so you can have a rockin’ (and fashionable) New Year’s Eve:

Bring on the sparkles

A big trend every New Year’s Eve is to wear something shiny. A sequin dress or skirt is usually how people spice up their outfit. However, pairing a simple dress with a lot of sparkly jewelry can really add to your overall look too. If you have a pair of sparkly heels sitting in the back of your closest, now would be the perfect time to pull them out.

Dramatic makeup is key

New Year’s Eve is the time to bust out your most dramatic, yet playful, makeup look: make your eyeliner heavy and your eyes smoky. Also, be sure to pick out the perfect shade of lipstick so your lips are ready for a midnight kiss. You don’t want something to sticky or dry for the big moment: pick a lipstick with a killer color and layer it with some lip balm, for soft and supple lips.

Don’t let your hair drop before the ball

New Year’s Eve is one of the longest nights and that means you have to be very careful about the hairstyle you choose. You will most likely be at your festivities until the early morning and you don’t want your hair to droop before midnight. If you choose to go with curls, which I usually do, make sure you use a maximum hold hair spray that you trust. That way your curls will still look fresh when the new year starts. If you don’t want to worry about your hair all night, don’t be afraid to go with an updo this New Years. A sock bun look with a braid would be a perfect option.
